Storyline

Following a meltdown that leads to a suspension, professional golfer Zoe Papadopoulos travels to her grandparents' village in Greece to escape the harsh spotlight of the international sports world. Between baking bread and eating baklava, she meets and mentors a ten-year-old girl who is determined - against all odds - to become the next golf sensation. Along the way, Zoe rediscovers her Greek heritage, her love of the game, and the hidden strength within herself as she inspires the townspeople in an epic showdown against a greedy American developer.

Being a real hero (No Spoilers, No Bogeys)
27 May 2017 | by (online) – See all my reviews

I went to see a screening of this great film a few months ago. Without giving anything away, I think it's fine to mention that it really captures different aspects of the Greek condition, measures for success, and a few other things. What I loved about the movie is that behind all the humor, picaresque scenes, and romantic touches is a basic morality tale that really hits home. There are unexpected heroic elements in many of the characters, regardless of their social class, training, etc.

(I can't say much more than this or I'll set off a spoiler alert. If you haven't seen it yet, please plan to!)
